I'm on the fence with this one. It checks the boxes for battery life (enough to do a century). All in all this device seems very convenient for having 3 things in 1. I'm trying to weigh if it makes sense for my situation.
--Has anyone found a good way of protection a camera lens on this type of device on the back of a seat post? I ride a LOT of gravel in national forests and fully expect sand and stones to hit this thing. My varia 510 tends to be covered in dirt and grit after 1/2 of my rides. I'm not sure that helicopter tape would work for that? ( Does anyone know if it protects for impact? It would be fine for scratches). Then again I've not confirmed if helicopter tape would harm the image quality.
*EDIT* I've gone ahead and ordered mine. However if anybody comes up with ideas for a camera lens protector for rocks, I'd love to hear them.
